#13551 closed defect (fixed)

GUI: Grid view names show extra information when multiple parentheses are in the entry name

Reported by: Thunderforge Owned by: sev-
Priority: high Component: GUI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


If a game has multiple parentheses in the entry name, such as

Spy Fox 1: Dry Cereal (Windows, English (US))

Then it will appear on the grid view under the icon as

Spy Fox 1: Dry Cereal (Windows, English

It appears that the issue is that it is only truncating from the last ( instead of the first one.

Note that any fix will need to also correctly handle games that have parentheses in the game itself, such as:

Leisure Suit Larry 2: Goes Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places)

Would be nice to fix before the release

I noticed that some of my games still showed parentheses in the grid view, but it was no longer improperly truncated, so I still consider this issue to be fixed. Re-adding the games removed the parentheses entirely in grid view.
